WOMEN PLAN LOS ANGELES MEETING JENKINS WILL NOMINATE MeADOO PUEBLO, Colo., June 23. —“We have decided definitely to place McAdoo in nomination "without his consent. We shall ‘draft’ him. . “He is physically in fine condition and can not refuse the nomi nation.’’ This statement was given to the press here today by Burris Jen kins of Kansas City on arrival of the “Houn’ Dawg" special from Kansas City. SAN FRANCISCO, June 23. —Platform conferences are to begin here among democratic leaders immediately after the arrival of Carter Glass today. Senator Glass, who is expected to head the resolutions committee, is reported bringing with him the draft of a platform bearing the approval of President Wilson. Glass conferred with Wilson before leaving Washington. Glass’ arrival stimulates interest iu ike three platform planks concerning which there may be disputes before toe resolutions committee and perhaps be fore the convention. These are the league of nations, pro hibition and the Irish planks. W. J. Bryan served notice he will tight the administration forces on both the league and prohibition Issues. He declared the democrats dare not go to the country on a plank unquali fiedly indorsing the league &s President Wilson submitted it to the senate. Leaders here predict Bryan will be decisively defeated in the resolutions committee and that a plank will be adopted based on that written by the democrats of Virginia. The Virginia platform uses this lan guage with reference to the league: “We advocate prompt ratification of the treaty without reservations which would Impair its essential integrity.’’ MAJORITY CONSIDER LIQUOR ISSUE DEAD. Bryan also wanta a plank affirming the party’s snpport of national prohibi tion. In that he Is to be vigorously opposed by wet forces beaded by Gov. Edward I. Edwards of New Jersey who favors a personal liberty platform. Both the wets and drys will find op position from a great number of dele gates who believe that in view of the court's rnliug on prohibition question is settled and should not be touched upon by the democratic plat form. As to the Irish plank, there is a very general feeling among leaders and dele gates who are on the ground that some general, noncommittal expression ot sympathy for Irish nationalist aspira tions might well be included in the plat form, but a wrangle threatens over the form of the plank. Some bald the view that Ireland's hope of freedom lies In the league oi nations and that any reference to Irish should be conpled with the de ■Mffl4-<g>-sOgcatioiT Os t&e-TWStfc MBg An active lobby will he on the ground late this week to Insist that an Irish plank be adopted. WOMEN TO MEET IN LOS ANGELES. Representatives of the League of Women Voters will hold a conference In Los Angeles to draw up a series of planka which they will submit to the democratic convention for inclusion in the national platform. These planks will include: Indepen dent citizenship for married women; ®**jUtl°n of child labor; universal edu- Lfv” If- hygiene and a compre- department for education; in i' creased federal support of training in I home economics and reclassification of I federal civil service. Among those who will attend the con fetence are Mrs. Richard Edwards and Miss Adah Bush of Indiana. Democratic women delegates and of ficials also have begun to formulate ten tative planks, including such provisions as abolition of child labor, increased pay for teachers and continuation of war time protection for women in industry. MeADOO BOOM WON’T STAY DEAD. Counting William G. MoAdoo and President Wilson—and no list of demo cratic presidential possibilities is con / sidered by the party men now here to be complete without the names of both - there are-pretty nearly a score of can didates. in the open or potential, al ready under consideration. Alphabetically there are Bryan, Cox, Olgrk, Cummings, Davis, Edwards, Glass, Gerard, Hitchcock, MoAdoo, Marshall,' Meredith, Owen, Palmer, Payne, Sim mons and W llson to name those most frequently mentioned here. The MoAdoo boom has refused to stay dead. Finished, dead and buried though MoAdoo himself insists his boom must be considered, the managers of other candidates now here drumming up sup port for their men keep on talking of McAdoo. In the same breath they treat him as a dead one and yet as one still to be watched. “McAdoo,” they say, “is entirely out of the race. Whatever support lie ever had, Is now gone, spilt up among the other candidates. But If McAdoo’s name Is presented to the convention ” i GENERALLY BELIEVE HE'LL BE NOMINATED. The general belief here since the Mc ■ Adoo-Bhouse telegram, is that MeAdoo’s will be presented to the demo cracy convention here and will be voted on. A# to w hat will happen then, opinion is divided. Some declare that after the first bal two, when McAdoo will receive a complimentary and scattering vote, his name will disappear. Others say along about the eighth ballot or so McAdoo will be put across with a rush just as Senator Harding was In Chicago.

Haitu Witnt& Marshall Has Fun at Delmonte While Political Pot Boils Vice President Smokes Big Black Cigars and Refuses to Be Serious. SAN FRANCISCO, June 23—Out in Delmonte, Cal., in a big hotel, is a gray little man who smokes big, black cigars and chuckles constantly. He finds fun in everything. Apparently ho thinks there is fun in being vice president. Evidently he expects to find enjoyment in the nig democratic convention which opens Monday. Cndoubtedly there is no man now in California, nor will there be one before July 4, who is or will be more person ally Interested in what this convention will do than this same gray little man with twinkling eyes. In San Francisco one can find dozens of serious men. They do not have the same personal Interest, but they are taking the situa tion seriously. They are milling about the lobbies of the big hotels, issuing statements, guess ing, figuring and wondering. What is to be done about President Wilson and his league? What about the liquor question and the Irish question? What about William G. McAdoo. Sena tor Owen, Gov. Cox, Gov. Edwards and all the rest? They have given little consideration to the man at Delmonte, who chuckles over It all. OCT THERE AS V. P. AND OFFICIAL DELEGATE. While the dopesters lu the big city have given little consideration to this man. there Is a quiet little boom being fostered here, and before the balloting is very old It Is predicted Vice President Thomas Riley Marshall will swing into the field. He Is taking no part in the conversa tion, but there Is no question that he Is as serious a candidate for the place as any of those whose names have gone forth as real contenders. “I am here officially as vice president of the United States, and a delegate to this convention,” Mr. Marshall said. “I am looking on. but saying little. I have been locked up at Washington for a long time, and perhaps 1 have failed to grasp just what the people want.” That sounded serious. The next mo ment developed the joke. “I am beginning to learn, however,” j he continued. “I find that most of them want money, more money.” His long black cigar (hot ceilingward ; and a twinkle came into his merry eyes. He glanced about the room. It was the most beautifully appointed room in j one of the most expensive hotels on the i coast. SAY’S ‘J. HAM" HAS THE RIGHT IDEA. “I see that J. Hamilton Lewis Is run- j ning for vice president on his own plat- j form," he went on. “I think every man should have the right to run for president, on his own platform.” On the big questions that are to come j before the convention, Mr. Marshall has j very liberal view*. It is his philosophy that there are ! two sldea to every question, and every j tna>i should be given his say. “Every sheet of paper has two sldea no matter how thin It Is,” he ssys, chuckling. There are those in San Francisco who i believe this jovial human has talked himself out of a chance of being nomi nated. Recently upon reaching this city, he was quoted lu the newspapers ns suy < Continued on Page Two.) TWO BIG FIRES HIT BALTIMORE Blazes in Wholesale District Cause $1,500,000 Loss. BALTIMORE, June 23.

Hoosier Delegation to ’Frisco Happy Crowd of Excursionists By ROBERT A. BUTLER. ON BOARD DEMOCRATIC CLUB SPECIAL, AT SALT LAKE CITY. —The Indiana delegation is approaching San Francisco with an open mind. In fact, its collective mind is so completely open that politics is a sub ject almost taboo on this train. No one appears to have any very definite conception of the purpose of going to San Francisco and a real live presi dential candidate with a winning manner could get considerable of an ovation were he to join the delegation and advertise himself. Two significant things happened dur ing the trip from Indianapolis to the Rockies. Sid Kahn of Ligonier got up early Sunday morning and plastered the spe cial cars with pictures of Edward I.

A group including George Purcell of the Vincennes Sun sat on the observation end of the train and made It a point to inquire the sentiment of tlie railroad men along the line as to the presidential nom ination. Without exception the railroad men re plied : “We are for McAdoo!” Natives of the various towns through which the train passed generally ex pressed a “deep sea” attitude.

Later, In response to a question, he sold he did not believe that wrecking by the company wss confined to any ! part of the state, but that there was a general tiring of hands, j He said that service is very bad now j and that would Indicate something Is ' wrong with the management. In response to a question by one of the objectors to the proposed rates as to whether he had direct or indirect know!- ; edge that Edward Bloom, president of the company, had said he would never spend another cent in Indiana until , grnnted a raise In rates, he said “yes.” When a request was made for lnfor i niatlon as to where and how he had ot* i tained this Information, It wss decided ■ by the commission that he was not re i qnired to answer. NO SHORTAGE OF GIRL OPERATORS. When asked as no the shortage of girl operators, he said there was no need ! for a shortage, for the work was agree able and much pleasanter than factor* work. In response to a question as to what he thought of the wages, he said the girls do not receive a high enough sal ary, and that both the girls and the men should be paid higher—that Is, those who actually do the work. Telephone service In Indianapolis haa been worse during the last two weeka than it was early in February before the present high rates became effective, Mr. Atwater testified last night. Mr. Atwater told of some of his ex periences in making tests of service pro vided by the Indiana Bell In this and a number of other cities In the state, by himself and a number of assistant* and introduced In evidence a number of let ters of complaints that had been received. He explained first that they had been Instructed to be fair In every way and accurate In their investigations.

He said he had called up Mr. Wauipler, Mr. Pritchard and Mr. Watson. In speaking of his experlene. • at the offices of the company, he said the re plies usually were evasive: such ns, that the matter would be looked Into; that It would be si-en what could be done, (Continued en I’age Two.)

CITIZENS DEFEAT THEIR OWN PLANS Works Board Refuses Lights for Virginia Avenue. A petition of Virginia avenue prop erty owners asking that lights be placed 1 on both sides of the avenue from South | street to Fountain square was presented to the board of public works today. Several of the same petitioners only a short time ago signed a remonstrance against the improvement of the avenue j along the same stretch and the board I said It did not feel thit it would be justified In granting a petition for the establishment of the lighting system In ! light of that fact. The board said that It had entertained hopes of making Virginia avenue the j gateway to the south part of the city. , but that it could not be done unless the ! co-operation of the property owners I could be obtained. , DIFFERENCE COMES IN EXPENSE. The board said the only difference be tween wanting the improvement of the j street and lighting system was that the j one would have to be paid for by the ; property owner directly, while the other was paid for directly by the city. Continual complaints about the con dition of Virginia avenue come In, the board snld 1 , evidently from the same parties who signed the remonstrance. Thomas Walters, superintendent of the street cleaning department, was ordered by the hoard to gather up all the wooden sidewalk approaches.

The Carsonltes in this city (the Union ist followers of Sir Edward Carson) held a meeting to debate the advisability of marching to Londonderry to help out the unionists. The situation here is tense with ex citement. It is admitted that the whole Ulster province is on the brink of civil war. The temper of the Ulsterites is shown iby the following extract from an editorial In the Northern Whig: “The government seems to be afflicted with creeping paralysis. ! “If it contthues as weak as it Is at present. Ulster men will show that they are strong enough for the task at hand." Gen.
